Kodachromes of the Caribbean; The Field Photographs of Alain H. Liogier

October 19, 2017 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Join Brandy Watts as she discusses and signs her book “The Field Photographs of Alain H. Liogier: Plants of Hispaniola, Dominican Republic, 1968-1969”

“This volume represents an important selection of 116 photographs from a specific window of time and place as viewed through the camera lens of one of the greatest botanists of all time. Ms. Watts has curated an impressive collection of images that not only serve to document Dr. Liogier’s research but bring to light the unique way this particular scientist saw the world of plants in their environment. As Ms. Watts states, “Each photograph is an instant within diverging and overlapping trajectories: plant science research, photographic technology, plant species adaptation, habitat transformation, land conservation, climate change, a particular botanist’s research, and an individual’s lifetime.” If you are interested in where science and fine art merge, then this book is for you.”

The UCLA Mildred E. Mathias Botanical Garden acknowledges the Gabrielino/Tongva peoples as the traditional land caretakers of Tovaangar (the Los Angeles basin and So. Channel Islands). As a promoter of nature at a California land grant institution, we pay our respects to the Honuukvetam (Ancestors), ‘Ahiihirom (Elders) and ‘Eyoohiinkem (our relatives/relations) past, present and emerging.
